Soho Dental Implant Treatment

Losing a tooth not only affects your appearance, but it also impacts the everyday functioning of your mouth. A dental implant provides the same look and function as a normal tooth, helping you chew, talk, and smile again with ease. An artificial root, in the form of a small titanium screw, is inserted into the jawbone, and a small healing cap (temporary crown) is placed over it to protect the root as it heals.

The root must integrate into the jawbone to provide a sturdy, permanent structure. This process may take several months. Once it has healed, you can be fitted with a permanent crown. Dental implants are the best way to get natural-looking teeth in the long run. For more information, contact Smile Lab Dentistry today to schedule a consultation. Let’s work together to find a solution for you!

What to Expect With Your Dental Implants Procedure at Our Soho Office

Dental Implant Procedure

Your dental implant procedure will likely have to be broken up into different parts, one procedure for the placement of the implant and another for the crown.

Your first procedure will involve the surgical placement of the implant. When you arrive at the office, we will bring you back for treatment and begin with local anesthesia or sedation, depending on which option you and Dr. Ebrahimi had agreed upon during your consultation.

Then, an incision is made into the gums, and the implant is placed in the gums and jawbone. The gums are then closed up, and the healing process begins.

In a few months, once the implant has set and healed, you will come back in for your crown. When that time comes, we will use an abutment, which is a metal piece that connects the crown to the implant. We will fit you for your crown based on your tooth impressions and attach it to the abutment.

Caring for Your Dental Implant

After completing your procedure, you should maintain good hygiene by brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing. Be sure to continue to schedule regular dental exams and continue to care for your implant like you would a natural tooth. While it may not be susceptible to decay, it’s important to care for the gumline surrounding the tooth to prevent gum disease.
